All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. To the extent the fund concentrates in a specific industry or a group of industries, the fund will carry much greater risks of adverse developments and price movements in such industries than a fund that invests in a wider variety of industries; there is also the risk that the fund will perform poorly during a slump in demand for securities of companies in such industries. Smaller, mid-sized and relatively new or unseasoned companies can be particularly sensitive to changing economic conditions, and their prospects for growth are less certain than those of larger, more established companies. Historically, these securities have experienced more price volatility than larger company stocks, especially over the short-term. There can be no assurance that the fund's multi-factor stock selection process will enhance performance. Exposure to such investment factors may detract from performance in some market environments, perhaps for extended periods. Performance of the fund may vary significantly from the performance of an index, as a result of transactions costs, expenses and other factors. These and other risks are detailed in the fund's prospectus.

Carefully consider a fund’s investment goals, risks, charges and expenses before investing. Download a LibertyShares ETF prospectus which contains this and other information. Carefully read a prospectus before investing or sending money.

ETFs trade like stocks, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below their net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

Strategic beta refers to a methodology of index construction that seeks to achieve better risk-adjusted returns compared to traditional market capitalization weighted benchmark indices. There is no guarantee that any strategy will achieve its objective.

1. LibertyQ ETFs utilize a rules-based investing methodology of index construction, which tracks an underlying index, and seeks to achieve better risk-adjusted returns compared to traditional market cap weighted indices.
